"Merge" is a permanent, site-specific installation spanning portions of Oak Hall on the campus of University of Connecticut, Storrs, CT. Extending from the first and second floors of the north lobby into the south lobby, the sculpture is an organically flowing river of shiny aluminum. Appearing as if it comes from nature, the man-made material implies constant movement while reflecting the changing light throughout the day and night.
Over 100,000 polished, brushed, & colored aluminum, ranging in size from 1x7” to 4x23”; 10,000 steel screw fasteners.
North Lobby: 168' (L) x 21' (W) x 16.5' (H)
South Lobby: 23' (L) x 5.5' (W) x 3' (H)
Commissioned by "Art in Public Spaces," Connecticut Department of Economic & Community Development.
